>1200monthly rent
Stop living in a big city, move into a middle sized city or even the countryside.
>450monthly healthcare bill
Well I guess if you are american this might be unavoidable.
>100monthly internet bill
Is this an american thing too? I have phone + cable + 100MB for less than 60€.
>450monthly car insurance bill
Why having a car if you live in a city? Unavoidable if you want to move to the countryside tho.
>40daily food cost
Eh I'm not sure about that.
>150Annual quarterly dentist cost
Brush your teeth to avoid the dentist.
>30monthly cell phone bill
Use your cellphone for calls only. Buy a tablet to use at home and install WhatsApp if necessary.
>500cost for a new phone
????
Why waste so much in a cellphone?
>6000annual Roth IRA contribution
Dunno what this shit means.

It's not parents you dimwit. You rent a bed.
No, not a room you privileged bastard.
A bed.
You rend a bed in a room with 4 other people, in an apartment where 16 workers live.

>what are you going to go to a job interview in? Sweatpants?

Literally, yes. Also there are no "job interviews." You report to where you're told and you just do the fucking job. If you suck you're told not to come back tomorrow.

Do you live in the US? Your prices are way out of whack. You also don't do shit like buy a new car, new tires, a new suit, and a new phone every year.

The average income in the US is around $60k. Normies obviously live just fine while earning that amount.

>2500ideal PC
Anything above 1000$ for a pc and you are wasting your money, at some point you are paying for nothing and are getting nothing out of the extra cost that is tangible.

Changing pcs and phones yearly is even dumber, something only a 50 iq american would do, same with cars and suits.

>40daily food cost

yeah, american piggie, why are burguers this bad with money? None of this is even remotely normal, is all bloated and terribly conceived.

I am thinking of applying but I probably won't as I have a great deal of social anxiety and I don't think I could handle making regular reports and being scrutinized by the mods. I'm also a bit worried about the review process being through voice chat or if that might be a regular thing. Even starting and then backing out is quite nervewracking for me (though i'm still considering it)

Does anyone have any experience being a janny on 4chan or other sites? What was it like?

Yeah. It's the reason I never applied for 4chan janitor - a good many would have the same idea I had, or some "if I were king for a day…" scenario. Amusing to think about, but not much use otherwise.

I wouldn't want 4kids (or any other site) to take my info, or take as little of it as it can.

Hey Wizards, who else feels drawn to a certain type of aesthetic? Or feels at home with one? I feel like some places online and in real life give off this vibe of being gateways, or liminal spaces at the entrance of a sort of parallel realm that comprises an aesthetic.

https://encyclopedia.zone/Dagger/Blood%20of%20the%20Honorable%20Outside%20Person.html

Sorry if this thread is only for visual stuff but this is an aesthetic I really like and wish I knew words to describe it that would lead me to finding more. I think "phantasmagoria" is a good word for it but nobody uses it that way. Fanged Noumena by Nick Land has a lot of it. Basically the aesthetic is methed out dreamlike mania. A lot of cyberpunk stuff is like this when it's not just doing the neo noir thing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAp9dlJIDI8

Here's a song that kind of has the aesthetic CCRU stuff.
have you noticed how a lot of contemporary subculture is the same manic schizophrenia, endless mix of high and low brow references, self-indulgent obscurantism, but stripped of the paranoic, edgy, apocalyptic vibe present in the 90s

Heaviness, twilight, gloomy, dark, dreamlike, clouded, smudged, blurry, melancholic
I suppose I am drawn to those words and feel at home with them if that could be an aesthetic. It's easy to find paintings with the feeling, but music is harder.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJO1UD-Q-o8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukdIv6YmBy0

Perhaps if I could take the dreamlike atmosphere of Cocteau twins, add some noise elements, distort it, and make it far darker; then I might find what I am looking for in music. Otherwise the above is close enough.

Why does Brittany Venti employ 2 government agents (Emprahh1 and Maeruyo) as editors and moderators?

Emprah is even legit-to-god Jewish. Isn't Venti supposed to be alt-right? What's a $138k a year military contractor working for the UK government as an intelligence analyst doing going to alt-right political rallies around the world?

Pic related is John Taylor Gatto, he was a teacher and then wrote a bunch of books about the history of public education and how awful school is. A lot of people today talk about increasing education, more people going to college, etc, but after studying some of the history of public schooling and thinking about my own experiences I'm starting to think school is mostly a bad thing. We spend most of our youth in these terrible institutions where we learn almost nothing. Almost all kids in school don't want to be there and would learn more useful things and be happier doing things out in the world. The history of schools is also very fucked up and basically they were just created because the wealthy factory owners didn't want a bunch of poor illiterate people causing problems.

If you look at the job market today, most people's job's have nothing to do with what they study in school, and could probably better off be learned by some kind of on the job training or apprenticeship. I think universities should still exist for the sciences, but should be much smaller and not a requirement to get some office job copying things from one database to another.

What do you wizards think about school?
